Teddy Bear Stuffing

“I Hate Teddy Bears”
That’s what she said
When we passed by
The aisle of Valentines
So across Teddy Bears
In the list of gifts
Is now a line

  • Chocolate
  • Teddy Bears
  • Flowers

When she picked one up
From the aisle to show me
I put it back
But why did she start to cry?
She hates Teddy Bears…
Right?
No?
Oh…
I thought that by listening
I was doing the right thing
The truth is that she loves them
But for some reason
Couldn’t tell me
I didn’t see the message
That she kept hidden
Stuffed away
Like the cotton
In these bears on the shelves
